6:18am
be bringing lots of rain to the area, about four to eight inches and localized areas, definitely even 12 inches of rain. as it comes in contact with land, tropical storms do, hurricanes, they weaken. that will happen and it will move inland. that biggest threat will be for rainfall across the area. our forecast looks good, once again. into today, tomorrow, by wednesday, we see more clouds trying to move into the area. lots of sunshine, the clouds will move in into the afternoon. this'll be courtesy of a dry front that will make its way in. it won't have any type of rain with it. we like to see that. that front will reinforce the cooler air we'll be seeing into thursday and also friday. but for today, that temperature around 83 degrees. mostly sunny, and it's going to be nice outside. don't let it pass you by. temperature mostly clear with a light breeze. by tomorrow, check it out, warmer, still ample sunshine in the forecast. enjoy, back to you, megan.

masseuse who advertised on the site. he was also accused of robbing two other women who used craigslist to pitch their exotic services. craigslist ceo promised more vigilance. >> we're shocked and horrified any time we hear of violent crime or any crime being linked to our site in any way. it causes us to redouble our efforts to get the word out about being safe online. >> reporter: markoff committed suicide in his jail cell awaiting trial in august. recently, 17 state attorneys general filed suit demanding the adult services be shuttered. it's unclear if the section is closed for good or if the word censored that replaced it is meant as a message to critics for a site that offers almost anything, answers appear in short supply. 20 minutes after 6:00: coming up next: he interrupted her acceptance speech last year, but continues to apologize. >> kanye west, his latest
